Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Passing and Receving
Save Image: Football/Soccer Session Plan Drill (Colour): Passing and Receving

Passing and Receving (15 mins)

Organization:

8 on outside, 8 on inside. Apapting on numbers, long as we can even up players on outside and inside. Players located on inside's job is to demand ball from anyone on the outside who has the ball free. They receive, perform skill asked by coach, then pass back, and go repeat skill/

Instructions:

Working for 2 minutes non stop on each rotation. Working on several aspects of controlling and passing. We will perform 5 different methods during the drill:

1) 3 Touch (Inside, Outside, Pass)

2) 2 Touch (Inside, Pass)

3) 2 Touch (Outside, Pass)

4) 1 Touch (Inside, looking to just cushion)

5) Any of above, must encourage change.

Coaching Points:

Making sure with each skill, certian things are adhered too. When playing 3 touch, they must take ball one way with inside then immedtialy shift direction to create a disguise. With 2 touch, the inside touch must come across body in order to take one step to pass back to partner. Will be looking for a general enthusiasm and work rate.

Progressions:

Instead of playing back to partner, could work on turning out and playing to a free player on the outside. Again, only if they can perform the above!
